The present pandemic situation has disrupted the entire educational system. It is commendable though that various government bodies and educationalists across the country are working towards finding ways and means to help students continue their learning process while they are safe and secure at home. As soon as the lockdown was announced, schools already having integrated E-learning portals were able to embrace the change quickly and adapt to the new situation through the E-learning platforms and ensured continuity of the teaching-learning processes. For these schools, the major challenge was to enable acceptance of the new normal by the parents and the students. In the initial stage there were difficulties, seeding issues but the stakeholders adopted the change and fortunately many parents opted to be co-learners to enhance the e-learning outcomes among their children. Over the passage of just four months, we have witness a significant growth in the shift to online education.




In this Covid-19 era, the obvious focus of schools will now be on innovation in leveraging technology, active collaboration and capacity building to deliver an immersive learning experience online. 'E-learning' is the way forward as an essential aspect of education system. This is going to continue to remain as the top priority in the K-12 sector. Also blended learning model of merging classroom engagement with an e-learning support system will enrich the K12 teaching-learning space. The present situation has given an opportunity for digital transformation of the education system and the future will witness not only virtual classrooms but also parent teacher interactions on virtual platforms whenever needed. The Ed-Tech players will play a big role here in improving the overall learning experience of students and the efficacy of the education system.
